There are various implications with placing insurance with an unlicensed individual, such as:
- You have no assurance the policy is valid, which can result in claims not being covered.
- Your policy can be voided or subject to cancellation for misrepresentation.
- Policy cancellations can impact your insurance history which can lead to increased costs for insurance.
An Ontario insurance agent or broker can provide information and advice on the risks involved with purchasing different insurance products, as well as tips on avoiding auto insurance sales scams.
